Sylvana has completed the Nia White, Green, Blue, Brown and Black Belt, and the Nia 5 Stages training. Sylvana is based in Emu Park, Queensland.

“My earliest memories include a love of dance. I had no opportunity to attend classes, but always enjoyed movement to music. I have tried many forms of exercise over the years. While enjoying the results, a lack of long-term interest made them difficult to sustain.

From the first Nia class I felt as though I had come home – home to myself. I absolutely love the freedom of Nia. I would go to Nia classes for the sheer fun of dancing but there’s a bonus…you get fit, feel energetic, become more healthy in every way and meet wonderful people. With Nia you lose unhelpful old fears and inhibitions, move the way your body wants to move to the extent that feels good at the time, and do it all to funky world music. Nia is holistic, healing, and joyful – I love Nia!!”
